Certified Peer Supporter
Hi, my name is Kris. Connecting to someone who has been in and through similar things can be a game changer. It can be helpful to have someone who will actively listen without passing judgment. It can be meaningful to access support. I have had many different experiences ranging from mental health struggles & trauma to gender identity and parenting. I'm here to listen and support YOU! Reach out!
